Hott Pocket

I always use a hair straightener in the mornings to straighten my hair, and although my straightener heats up in 1 minute — it doesn't cool down that fast! When I travel with it, I don't like placing it with my other items in my bag because it's so hot, so I decided to make a "Hott Pocket"...Get it? Hott pocket? Heh...Heh? :D Anyway, here are the items you'll need to make your own hott pocket (and yes, I know I'm spelling hott with two "T"s, because you know, it's not one of "those" hot pockets):
  • Felt (which I got at Michael's for $1)
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Safety Pins

First, lay out your pre-cut felt.

Second, fold the bottom of the felt towards the top and secure the ends with the safety pins, leaving one end open – it won't be sewn together because that end will be your opening (P.S. You may want to use sewing pins instead of safety pins, I just didn't have any on hand)

Next, go ahead and sew along the ends where you placed your safety pins.

I did an easy over under stitch, it looks messy, but the needle used was quite thick, so the entry for each stitch had to be off a little so it wouldn't just fall through.

Once you're done, go ahead and flip your hott pocket inside out, and you're ready to roll.
